As Power2Learn hits classroom nationwide and students are introduced to the curriculum it becomes critical for us to continue to gather feedback about what works and what can be improved upon.
This stage of research and refinement is critical to providing the strongest product we can to schools. Students in Urbandale provided insight about various parts of their introduction to Power2Learn lessons. Not every comment was positive, but that is helpful in shaping future lessons and subsequent versions of the curriculum. The IEE team is spending time going over surveys with critical eyes and sharp minds to see how we can meet both the wants and needs of students as well as target the competencies that are so important to their success in school, work, and beyond.
One student in Urbandale notes that they, “liked that [we] got to learn about groups and teamwork.” Another adds that it “helped [us] connect with all of our classmates,” “we got to work in a small group and share some of our achievements and goals.” How often do we have students studying elements of good teamwork, collaboration, intentionally sharing achievements, and even more importantly meaningful goals for the future?
The feedback, including both the pieces of praise and the areas that need polish are furthering the efforts of Power2Program development and future improvement.
